It can be male or female, living or dead. I think the funniest comedian was Rene Requiestas. If he didn't die of tuberculosis, I think he will still have a brilliant career on either GMA or ABS-CBN today. Poor guy. He was a star back then and he died too early. Right now, the comedian that I can appreciate the most is Eugene Domingo. She is very effortless when it comes to making people laugh. I think she and Ai-ai makes a good tandem, they're very effective when they throw their lines. Another comedican I want to commend is Janus del Prado. I think this young guy can be a future star in the movie industry. He oozes with pure comedic talent and he knows his timing well. How about you? Who are your favorite Pinoy comedians? Discuss.

Eugene Domingo is on my top list,Everytime i watch comedy show that Ms Domingo is there,i stop myself laughing from the start of the show.This woman is really funny and if she will be given a chance to have a solo movie this might can bring her for stardom.She has a natural way of delivering her act and make her audience really laugh.

Actually she will have a solo movie entitled DEMETRIA. ^_^ I think it's going to be a drama/comedy though.

When it comes to stand up comedy, I really like Pooh. His facial expressions and gestures alone make me laugh.

Yeah, he is the best Pacquiao impersonator ever. :) And he's generally funny even if he's not impersonating anyone, he's quick on his feet and he can make you laugh because he's really witty. I remember one time where he guested in Wowowee where he was complaining about his boyfriend. That was hilarious. If only I can find that YouTube clip again.

Hi to you inkyuboz and to all, good day to everyone... Well here in the Philippines there is so many comedian, they all the best for me, many Filipino here in our country really great because they give happy feeling when there is a comedian... Me when i got tired i always try to listen or watch to a comedian, in order for me to be relaxed, but for me the only comedian in the Philippines that was really great and funny is BITOY MICHAEL V. Because as you can see to their show like Bubble Gang and BITOY FUNNIEST VIDEO he always make the watcher to laugh especially when the episode is LIVE. For me many Filipino want to be like him because he always do good jokes and things and i also think that many Filipino admired BITOY MICHAEL V. even Forigner admir him. Well that's the end of my response to this topic entitled "who is the funniest comedian in the Philippines. . . Thank you. . .

Eugene Domingo, Ai Ai and Pokwang are the stand outs for me. I choose them since they are comedians who never hesitate to show off. I love and follow their movies and shows on TV. My family love them as well. We always have laughs and smiles at homes talking about these great people.

You mentioned Rene as the funniest comedian but sad to say that he can never show his talent anymore. He maybe one but I can still go for Mang Pidol as the best. Eugene is also a great comedienne, so as Ai-Ai and others. If we can dig up more with the history, there were Chiquito, Panchito and others. Those still making the history are Bitoy, Jose Manalo, etc.

i've seen jose manalo and wally in one of their shows and i would say jose manalo is the best! every punchline he uttered was really funny and also his body language supplements it. ive seen others like allan k, aiai, gladys and pooh but nothing compares with jose. i also like eugene domingo. she is for me, the best sidekick and supporting actress. her face and expression alone is funny already!

i do think that Rene Requiestas was one of the most funniest comedian of all time in the history of Philippine cinema. He's funny antics was really one of a kind. as for the promising comedians today, Pooh is one of my favorites, when he impersonates Manny "PACMAN" Pacquiao, i really laugh out loud. he's too effortless making people laugh. as if he was born to be a natural comedian. the first day of 2009, January 1st, me and a friend of mine had the chance to watch and drink in a comedy bar in Sea Side in Mall of Asia, the name of the comedian was Peanut, he's a great comedian as well, and also he and Pooh had performed together in Metro Bar. Catch Pooh, Vince Ganda, Anton Diva, and some stand up comedians as they make you laugh out loud on your seats in Metro Bar.

I agree that Rene Requistas is one of the best commedian ever in philippine history and he is a legend already. Presently, i would say that Eugene Domingo is one of best commedian in present time. She is really good in throwing her funny lines. Poohwang tandem is good too. They are funny together, i watched one of their concert and i had fun watching them. I guess there are lots of good comedians and i think they are funny on their different ways.

^_^ Mabuhay ka!.... inkyuboz!.... Oh I really missed so much passed away comedians like Chiquito, Cachupoy and Apeng Daldal. I like their expressing their funny and humorous antics. I hope they reruns all those classic comedy films on TV. Well today comedians I like are Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola, Allan K, Janno Gibbs, Ogie Alcasid and Michael V. By the way, Jose Manalo first job on showbiz was on drama like Agila and Valiente. On female comedian, I like Candy Pangilinan..... ^_^ Salamat!.... and Enjoy!....
